is the route forward for the middle class and the working people of america, they need convincing arguments and convincing people to do it. mitt romney, if you look at it from even the slightest distance, was arguably the worst possible carrier of that message. they need somebody else. they need to southern populism or populism from somewhere, but they also need the proof. they need the evidence. and lacking the evidence last time in the election of a week ago, a week or two ago, people went with the -- what they knew, which was the president's belief in the power of government to work well with the economy. >> i think they realized during the campaign thanks to some extent to the advertising we have done on this show and others, they understand that the koch brothers exist and they didn't feel they were in the same tax bracket as those characters. if they're up to something with the tax brackets maybe it's not in my interest and may families. i want this to go on. i wish the campaign was still going on. >>> rick perry became the butt of late night jokes when he suggested texas secede from
